“The X Factor” had an interesting audition from Tara Simon, a vocal coach. When she confidently stated she’d like to judge a show like “X Factor” and Simon asked her whose spot on the panel she’d be in in five years, she said she assumed one of the girls.

And everybody acted all offended, when Tara is totally right to say that. L.A. and Simon aren’t going anywhere, if this show is even still going in five years. But there is no way Brit-Brit and Demi are still around. So everybody get your panties out of a twist, judges.

Anyway. Tara did her thing and it was very good — the judges thought a little too over-coached, which makes sense, since she’s a vocal coach. But they put her through with four yesses.

What did you think of Tara Simon?
